About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for An Explanation of the Works of the Tunnel Under the Thames from Rotherhithe to Wapping.

Description:

Oblong 24mo. 24pp. Illustrated with nine leaves of engraved plates, three of which fold out, and one which has an overlay showing workers within the tunnel. An account of the construction of the Thames tunnel, the first known tunnel to have successfully been built underneath a river. The illustrations include architectural plans and engineering diagrams for the project, as well as a frontispiece showing a completed section of tunnel lit with gas lamps. Diagrams also demonstrate exactly how workers were able to remove earth and lay bricks, and illustrate the endeavor's progress relative to landmarks above ground. Construction on the tunnel began in 1825 and was finally completed in 1843. At the time that this booklet was published, crews had completed 640 of the planned 1,300 feet of the tunnel's length, and it is likely that this was an effort to increase public interest and enthusiasm for the project at its midpoint. More guides such as this were produced as the construction on the tunnel progressed. Some pencil marks and an ownership inscription to covers, light scattered foxing throughout, else about fine in tan wrappers with a pink printed label to the front cover. A clear and concise educational guide to this historic engineering project. Bookseller Inventory #
